between now and october 14th at midnight. any place you say, governor romney, we'll be there. >> all right. we're going to be holding our breath until october 14th at midnight. linda ellerbee gets tonight's last word. >>> time to attack. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening, everyone. i'm chris matthews from washington. let me start tonight with this. attack. a month now stands between here and election. four weeks to sell the country on the difference between obama and romney on the big issues of our times. time to attack. time to remind voters who rode to the rescue -- who did ride to the rescue of the american auto industry and who stood out there telling it to go bankrupt. time to attack. which candidate fought to get equal pay for equal work for women so no girl in america will ever grow up thinking her time, her sweat is worth less than a boy's? time to attack. which candidate saw 40 million people, uninsured americans, dragging themselves to sit for hours in emergency rooms across the country? he saw it, obama did, and refused to let it stay that way through yet
process matters. which is why last night's debate was so important when mitt romney stood there talking about states' rights. states' rights is what was fought against to get the voting rights in '65 where alabama wanted the right to determine who would vote and how. we need a strong national government to support strong american people. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> the day after. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews back in washington. let me start tonight with two big questions, "hardball" questions if you will. one, why? why did what happened last night happen? why did a president who has proven himself as a policy expert and world class politician let the other guy take charge? because if he can't answer that question, he may be doomed to defeat in the remaining two debates. second big question, can a victory over the facts of last night's debate, what was true and what was not, turn the tables now? can barack obama win by getting out the word he didn't get out last night? and both are big questions t
is the highest chance of winning. so much for that debate and so much for romney attacking big bird. thank you for joining me. >> the ed show is up next. >>> the day after. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews back in washington. let me start tonight with two big questions, "hardball" questions if you will. one, why? why did what happened last night happen? why did a president who has proven himself as a policy expert and world class politician let the other guy take charge? because if he can't answer that question, he may be doomed to defeat in the remaining two debates. second big question, can a victory over the facts of last night's debate, what was true and what was not, turn the tables now? can barack obama win by getting out the word he didn't get out last night? and both are big questions tonight that might just decide this presidential election. i'm joined by governor ed rendell and ron reagan, both msnbc analysts. this is a tough blog by a guy who has been very strong for obama over the years. andrew sullivan of the daily beast. he wrote this last night, ba
the republican party of alabama is why you should vote for mitt romney. undecided ohio voter, meet a busful of alabama republicans. what could possibly go wrong? i wonder if they will have matching hats. that does it for us tonight. now it's time for a special live friday edition of "the last word." have a great night. >> we have hit the point in the election where people begin to lose their minds. the jobless rate fell below 8% in september which is good news for president obama and a new conspiracy theory for some republicans. >> we've had 43 straight months with unemployment above 8%. >> a major victory for president obama. >> the white house got some welcome news. >> the unemployment rate has fallen who its lowest level since i took office. >> this is excellent news. >> it's definitely a good day for the american economy. >> 7.8. >> 7.8. >> there's no way that's right. >> there are some people out here who don't like this number. >> the harsh back and forth. >> over today's jobs reports. >> now we've sea got jobbers. >> business pioneer jack welch calls these numbers into question. >> t
to turn back now. >> mitt romney also campaigning in virginia. not as impressed. >> we don't have to stay in the path we've been on. we can do better. there was a report that just came out this morning on job creation this last month. there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month. and the unemployment rate as you know this year has come down very slowly, but it's come down nonetheless. the reason it's come down this year is prime rarely due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> what mitt romney is getting at there, when you look at a report like this where the unemployment rate is dropping but there aren't that many new jobs, you worry immediately that you're seeing a kind of trick. in particular, you worry that the unemployment rate dropped because discouraged workers gave up and they stopped looking. that did not happen this month. the number of people participating in the labor force went up, which means the rate didn't drop because there are fewer people looking for work. average hourly earnings also increased and here's the bad ne
>> john hodgman >>> romney's flipped again. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening i'm chris matthews in new york. we have a failure to communicate, that's what the chain gang said in "cool hand luke" when somebody broke the rules. when is mitt romney going to tell us what he really thinks, really beliefs, thinks voters have a right to know about what he does if he gets into the white house? will he let people languish in the emergency room, all 40 million of the uninsured, which is his official position, or is he going to do something nice for those people? will he push the right wing agenda on abortion rights, dumping planned parenthood funding, picking right wing judges for the supreme court or do what he said yesterday, nothing, nothing at all. have you nothing to fear. nothing at all, he said. i don't think romney wants anybody to know what his plans are. he wants to keep the middle calmly believing he doesn't intend to do any of that mean stuff he promises to do when he sits down with the right wing folks on whom he said is hard. joining me is michele richards now volun
in the ninth when mitt romney was foolish enough to throw that 10 0% line high and down the middle. obama swung for the fences and ended the night with his best of the night. but this battle is just getting serious. obama got beaten and came back to win but these are battles, the war rages right now. only one man with the power to swing it around. he needs to tell us, that's the president, where he's taking us economically, he need to lay out the highway to the future and lay it out in the real terrain of the past four years. that's part of it. saying where he's taking us. he also needs to say where the other guy would. i love what he said about romney lastight having a one-point plan, that being to give big tax breaks, even more tax breaks to the people at the top. to dump on the 47% he said he's not going to bother with. we've got to finish what we started in 2008. you don't want to invest in that sketchy deal. >> so let's recap what we learned last night. his tax plan doesn't add up. his jobs plan doesn't create jobs. his deficit reduction plan adds to the deficit. we've been there. we've tr
of the third and final presidential debate. let me start tonight with this. romney, wash. when i hear mitt romney speak about foreign policy, it's always toughness. when i hear bewe got to get tough, i hear war. surrounded as he is by the same people who were w's advisers, i feel his presence even stronger. war. does america want a war? in recent years we have had wars going on in iraq and afghanistan. do we now want another one with a far more powerful, more modern islamic country? the implication for romney's tough talk in iran is we can commit an act of out and out war against that country without using the ward wor. we attack their nuclear sites, they say urngcle, and that's the end of it. that's where people like general kour tis le may said 50 years ago during the cuban missile crisis. just knock out the soviet missiles in cuba. they won't do nothing. nikita khrushchev had plans to hit new york and said to. quote, i knew the united states could knock out some of our missiles even if only one or two big ones were left, we could still hit new york. an awful lot of people would have bee
of these two guys romney or obama can make the biggest gaffe, who can launch the deadliest zinger? that's the word romney's people. is this the dean martin rose to don rickles, is that the part we're casting here? sorry. i thought it was president of the united states. the person who will lead the west, lift this country up from long economic struggle, take us to a stronger, fair american future. i'm looking for the big thought tonight, the fresh, crisp, candid thinking that is the very essence of any set of solutions we can come up with. a fear a sling shot war, pestering salvos, crating bites for the next tv ads, words to be packaged and pitched out to us as examples of spontaneous vision and uncanny wisdom. i'm looking for the real thing. smart calls to action by someone who knows his number one job is simply to tell us what needs to be done. i'm joined by former white house press sect dedee dee myers and howard fineman. >> assume you're mitt romney and you have had a terrible summer, september and august, all the way through. you boopted it in london, you booted it over libya, you h
, florida, site of the third presidential debate in florida. romney war. when i hear mitt romney speak about foreign policy, it's always toughness. when i hear we've got to get tough, i hear war. surrounded as he is by the same people, i feel war presence is even stronger. and in iraq and afghanistan, do we now want another war and a more islamic country. the implication is that we can commit an all out act of war for actually using the word war. we can attack the nuclear sites and they say uncle and that's the end of it. they won't do anything and if only one or two big ones were left, we could still hit new york, an awful lot of people would be wiped out. consequences, understanding the consequences. that's what foreign policy is all about. war is not a policy. it's a declaration of failure. we have no idea what they plan to do and unleash on gaza, forcing others to knockout the rocket sites in both lands killing any number of civilians. and where would we be then? mr. romney's performance in foreign affairs from clumsy trip to europe where he managed to insult our hosts from the shoot fir
the country on the difference between obama and romney on the big issues of our times. time to attack. time to remind voters who rode to the rescue -- who did ride to the rescue of the american auto industry and who stood out there telling it to go bankrupt. time to attack. which candidate fought to get equal pay for equal work for women so no girl in america will ever grow up thinking her time, her sweat is worth less than a boy's? time to attack. which candidate saw 40 million people uninsured americans dragging themselves to sit for hours in emergency rooms across the country? he saw it, obama did, and refused to let it stay that way through yet another presidency. mitt romney saw the way things were and said he wants to keep things that way. if you don't have shoorns, tough. go get a seat with the other victims and moochers. well, this is where romney's vulnerable, where obama can come charging from his ground of strength. now is the time. romney taken to task for his positions so far from the american mainstream. i'm joined by democrat strategist bob shrum and former chair of the rnc m
that this voting group could peel away and mitt romney can get it. here's what we saw after the first debate. mitt romney's favorable rating went up with suburban women. his handling of the economy went up with suburban women. the only thing that didn't move enough was the ballot test. i think that's what you'll hear a lot tonight. you'll hear mitt romney trying to target these folks. not talking about social issues. you're going to hear the president, i think, try to bring this up in a way, because they believe this is their trump card into colorado, their trump card into virginia, their trump card in some of these suburban areas. you're right, they didn't bring it up a lot, although joe biden did. it's the one opening they thought biden exposed against paul ryan late in that debate. >> yeah, that was sort of -- it was done by his pushiness, if you will. biden kept pushing, pushing, until finally paul ryan broke and said what he really believed. a theocratic argument f you believe it morally you have to enforce it. which offends those in the middle and the left. howard, you heard something about
friends of mitt romney and who often are on mitt romney's side say they benefit from his administration. even the corporations have to stand up and them what we already know, he's a big liar. >> there's a limit even for them. ari melber gets tonight's last word. "the ed show" is up next. up next, "hardball with chris matthews." >>> good government, good politics. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this, i can't think of a better job than helping the american people defend themselves. fortunately for president obama, that's his job this week. he signed up for it, and now it needs doing. there's no walking away from it, nothing that takes precedence over putting his head and heart into ensuring the absolute best of his ability that people in the northeast part of the country recover and begin to reconstruct from this natural . >> even though the cha firefighters have been blocked from getting to the fire due to high floodwaters. and as we told you yesterday, a construction crane that collapsed because of
calling mitt romney a liar? >> yes. >> in this regard, mitt romney may not be the chief of sinners, but he is the liar in chief. thank you so much for watching. chris matthews and "hardball" is next. >>> second quarter. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with the debates. last week's and this week's. last week's got a lot of harsh commentary and a lot of satire, including this from "saturday night live." >> joining us from outside the university of colorado where he is has refused to eat, shower or sleep, since the debate, chris matthews. >> what the hell happened? i want answers! >> is that me? anyway, so that's the battle. the war continues. there are ktinu. there are two kinds of success winston churchill once said, initial and ultimate. the presidential candidate who comes out on top of all four of these debates including the 1r79al debate will be the one who impress it's the american people with one message, that he can take us to a better place, he can deliver us from the economy we all inherited from george w. bush to
guy would. i love what he said about romney last night having a one-point plan, that being to give big tax breaks, even more tax breaks to the people at the top. to dump on the 47% he said he's not going to bother with. the big "hardball" question of the night, where does this stand politically right now? where does it appear to be headed between now and the 20 days from now when the american people give their final verdict? "the huffington post" howard fineman, nbc political consultant. president obama came out swinging today on the trail as he referenced last night's debate. let's watch that together. >> so, let's recap what we learned last night. his tax plan doesn't add up. his jobs plan doesn't create jobs. his deficit reductions plan adds to the deficit. so, iowa, you know, everybody here's heard of the new deal. you've heard of the fair deal. you've heard of the square deal. mitt romney's trying to sell you a sketchy deal. we are not buying it. we know better. we've been there. we tried that. we're not going back. we're moving forward. that's why i need your vote! we've got to f
. bush to something better. romney came out best in the first debate because he denied the path he has chosen, denied the big tax cut from 35% down to 28% for people at the top bracket. the all-out elimination of the estate tax, the big-time cut in the corporate rate. he denied his plan to eliminate medicare, denied he would kill coverage for those with pre-existing conditions. he got away without bothering to deny his plan to let the automobile industry to go bankrupt and to dump 40 million people to wait in the emergency room. let's look at some of the latest polling in the wake of wednesday's debate. this afternoon pew released a poll that showed a dramatic shift toward romney. this poll covers the four days since the debate, and it has romney pulling even with president obama among registered voters, 46% even. four weeks ago pew had obama up by nine among registered voters, so this has been a huge shift in the pew poll. the move in the pew poll towards romney is greater among likely voters. romney is surging ahead to 49%. four weeks ago obama led among likely voters by eight. now t
personality asked him an overtly political question about mitt romney. let's take a listen. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. >> right. >> i have a job to do here in new jersey. i have got 2.4 million people out of power. i have got devastation on the shore. i have got floods in the northern part of my state. if you think right now i give a damn about presidential politics, then you don't know me. >> let's talk about that, chuck, and i do believe it. you know, i have been having a big -- we had a big production meeting today talking about the motives that move people. it's always complicated. when you're in war you worry about your buddies and getting through the night achieving your mission. there may be medals down the road but they're not on your mind certainly i can imagine. any political medal it's will have to come as afterthoughts. that's my thinking. i am not a 23450i eve person. i think they're doing their jobs. your thoughts. >> i do, too. new
romney doesn't mean what he says. and that should concern any voter. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> the hawk goes lovey-dovey. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews back in washington. let me start with this tonight. i suppose when you take it all in, the three debates, all that came before it, it comes down to what kind of a president do you want? obama's a man of the world. he respects other countries, accepts the fact we are, we americans, part of this planet. maybe the best part. but we share the world, and we better be a smart, just, and competent citizen in it. we need to take the long view of our interests and use our influence when we can but also avoid stuff that makes the future more dangerous. romney, well, clearly he's in debt to the hawks, the neoconservatives who write the stuff we heard last night, this talk of accusing the president of iran of genocide for the things he said about israel. it's purely political stuff. that and what he said about russia being our number one enemy in the world today. all this o
more dangerous. romney, well, clearly he's in debt to the hawks, the neoconservatives who write the stuff we heard last night, this talk of accusing the president of iran of genocide for the things he said about israel. it's purely political stuff. that and what he said about russia being our number one enemy in the world today. all this old cold war stuff. what's beneath it? who knows. what we do know is he feels the need to wear that neocon suit. will he rip it off if elected? why would anyone think that? he spoke about wanting a peaceful planet. talk about learning a dance for the occasion. john heilemann and ron reagan join us. mitt has a tendency to assume whatever political profile he thought would best help him win. in 2007 facing a relatively moderate john mccain and rudy giuliani, he tacked to the hard right. everything could always be tweaked, reshaped, fixed, addressed said one former aide describing his outlook. saying it was foreign to him on policy issues that core principles mattered, that somebody would go back and say, well, three years ago you said this. as the

[ laughter ] >> we're both from philly. seriously, though, my argument is here -- you can say what you want, from this [ muted ] where we go and focus on the big issues that separate these two candidates. your thoughts, bob shrum? that first debate was toesed to be about domestic issues. none of those issues came up. i think in the next debate, in the town hall format, the president has to make sure they're front and center. it's about what's said day after day after day. >> r
